We've never seen a wind farm before. It's well worth a stop to get up close-ish. The sign boards appear to have errors i.e. I don't expect they generate 600KV (volts). It should read 600KVA which is a capacity measure. We loved watching the rotation...More

We visited the Crookwell Wind Farm viewing area recently on a trip from Goulburn to Orange. It is worth a stop if you are passing by, to read the signboards giving details and specifications of the wind farm. Some of the turbines are quite close...More

After driving up from Goulburn we were able to get up close and personal. These fans are 60m in diameter and are majestic. For such big units they are amazingly quiet and set in lovely countryside

We pass this viewing place every time we go to Crookwell. They are not the only windmills around, but a nice place to stop and view the surrounding countyside in all seasons. .

The wind farm just outside Crookwell is a bit underwhelming these days. When the eight turbines were erected back in 1998 it might have been a sight to behold, as it was one of the first wind farms in Australia, but these days it's dwarfed...More

I wouldn't recommend making this the sole reason for your trip. Just large fans in open paddocks that people either love or hate. The littlies may get excited and look for the teletubbies and if you pick the right day you may even be able...More

This is really interesting to break your trip and stretch your legs. The windmills are impressive but nowhere near as huge as the monstrosities that are all around them. Feel sorry for all the landowners putting up with them just so Sydney can have power.

A nice quiet viewing area has been created off the Crookwell-Goulburn Road, plenty of parking with an informative display board outlining details of the turbines.

When the Crookwell Wind Farm was first built it was something of a special project that was either loved or hated by the community. Over the years it's just become part of the scenery, but in my opinion it remains quite majestic with the white...More

Scenic view over the countryside on the road to Crookwell. Makes for some lovely photos with the turbines looking very impressive from the viewing area.
